Cyber Care: Robots and Aging in Place

June 30, 2010 at 7:34 am Leave a comment

It seems the new buzz-word is Cyber Care. As a follow-up to my last post, I located a very recent article from Scientific American that also discusses the current development of Elder Care Robots to assist seniors with Aging in Place.    The article reviews the current work of robotics companies that are “designing prototypes to provide automated assistance to the elderly at home, targeting a market that promises to grow as people live longer.”

Like any other piece of technology, user acceptance is always a concern.  How do you think seniors will accept the use of a robot in their home?
